NEW CASTLE — Hundreds searched Moraine State Park over the weekend for a missing man.

The search will resume at 8 a.m. today for Nicholas Sopel, 62, who has been missing since Wednesday, according to park ranger Bryan Moore.

Sopel, whose address was unavailable, was reported missing Wednesday. His truck, containing his wallet, was found parked along Route 422 near Lake Arthur.

Moore said that at least 150 searchers searched the park and lake Saturday with dogs, land units and dive teams. Yesterday, two teams comprised of 16 people used sonar gear to search from 8 a.m. to dusk.
